08:32 EDTBX, BEEStrategic Hotels to buy remaining interest in Hotel del Coronado for $210M
Strategic Hotels & Resorts announced last night that the company has signed an agreement to acquire the remaining 63.6% ownership interest in the 757-room Hotel del Coronado for $210M. The company currently owns a 36.4% ownership position in the asset through a joint venture with certain affiliates of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI (BX). The transaction values the asset at a gross value of approximately $787.0M, net of approximately $18.0M of cash currently held at the property and within the joint venture, and includes the assumption of the existing $475.0M mortgage financing. The net purchase price represents a 14.3 times multiple on forecasted 2014 EBITDA and a 6.2% capitalization rate on forecasted 2014 NOI. Management estimates the to-be-acquired 63.6% interest in the hotel is projected to generate an incremental $19M-$21M of EBITDA for the remainder of 2014. In Q1, RevPAR grew 11% at the property resulting in 21% EBITDA growth. The transaction, which is subject to certain closing conditions, is expected to close in the second quarter of 2014.

06:43 EDTBXFTC issues subpoenas regarding Sysco, US Foods merger, NY Post says
Indicating further delays and possible cancellation of the deal, regulators from the Federal Trade Commission sent subpoenas to a third-party food distributor this week regarding Sysco's (SYY) $8.2B merger with US Foods, reports the New York Post, citing a source with direct knowledge of the situation. The source said it is "shockingly unclear" whether the FTC is gathering information in order to approve the deal or to block it. Blackstone's (BX) Performance Food Group, which earlier agreed to buy $5B of Sysco assets to make Sysco's merger more palatable to regulators, did not receive a subpoena. Reference Link
